Okay so at the moment I play through a Begginers Squier pack, I want to upgrade my amp. I want a tube amp. I live in Australia. 15W or less is plenty for what im going to use it for, Bedroom practice and rarely very small gigs. I would rather 5W but 15W is okay, nothing over.

My budget would be nothing over $800AUS and Im looking for a very Versatile amp that can do nice cleans, a good Slash from Guns N Roses tone and a nice Metallica tone.

Mini Heads and cabnets are fine, combos would be better though.
Suggest me some amps please?

Epiphone Valve Junior + Extension cab + some pedals.
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

Do you already have a small cabinet? If so, get a used orange Tiny Terror. It's got great sound and is at 15watts. New they're right at your top price, $550 US. So go with used and you can get it for around 475 or lower. (US) However, if you don't have a cab already, that'll cost you alot more.

I'll look some more stuff up for you.

Pretty small, 100 or 200 people? School hall sometimes.


EDIT- Orange tiny terror heads Used dont pop up here much on Ebay and the New ones on there are $900 just for the Head. Australia Sucks.

I mean that will be done very Rarely in future (1 or two years) and it can be mic'd. I think 15W would be fine. Amp Suggestions?

UUUUUGH that sucks man, I think they would fit you perfect. Well, i'll see what else I can find.

You might want to look into Blackheart's 15watt. Linky coming soon.

Yeah I was looking at them earlier today, Also Blackstar HT's. Opinions on these?

I can get a Blackstar for around $750 (Combo).

Would that be my best option?

The Blackheart or Behringer?


EDIT: I think so, but check out the tone and make sure you like it first. And we're still talking about blackhearts, not blackstars, right?

Either, Blacheart or Blackstar. Both combos for around $700 - $750 dollars.

Which would be better? OR can I do better?


EDIT - SO MANY EDITS

Ill be ordering online since there's no Guitar Stores in my area. It would be pretty hard to try one out.
